Selling a house can be an arduous task, with indoor and outdoor upgrades, listing advertisements, home staging, open houses and private showings, contract negotiations and complicated paperwork. As sellers, you need to find the right buyer, who’ll offer you the best terms, and you shouldn’t have to achieve this on your own.

For Sellers: Real Estate News and Info from the Ulster County Board of REALTORS®

Almost all home and property sellers (89%) today list with an agent, who guides them through the selling process and helps ensure their listing reaches a large number of potential buyers. Only 11% of sellers sell their home without partnering with an agent.

On this site you’ll find comprehensive real estate data analysis from the New York State Association of REALTORS®; the latest industry news for home sellers; the top reasons you should use a REALTOR®; our MLS home-listing search tool; town-by-town descriptions of life in Ulster County; and the best ways to connect directly with the Ulster County Board of REALTORS®.

Remember: It’s never been easier to find a real estate agent to guide you through the home-selling process. Google “real estate agent” and the town in which you’re selling, and contact licensed REALTORS® with experience in your area and price range.
